My love affair with Bottlehead began when I heard a pair of amps using your cobalt transformers.  Any chance of a full-out assault like this on the Paramount iron?  And before I get too excited, any estimate of cost in today's market?

Hi Tony:

Thanks for the Christmas card! 

Yes... the price of cobalt could well dampen one's acquisitions appetite.

I do plan on looking at doing a special version of our TFA-2204 Junior shortly.

I'm looking at some nano crystalline c-cores and will explore also the possibility
of a cobalt core for this guy.

Will post up additional info and details as they become available.

Hello.  And thank-you for your interest in the Paramount iron.  Please note that we do offer the
Paramount output trans in an all nickel configuration.  For a cobalt project we will probably need
to go for a core size that is more widely used in our lineup--- the upfront costs of getting supplies
is huge and we need equally large "fields of applications" to make it doable.  So in the short term
I don't think cobalt will be available for a special Paramount output.
